8 4/5 oz. Wild Garden Heat & Serve Couscous Pilaf pouch

2 small delicata squash

1 tsp sunflower oil

1/2 cup diced yellow onion

1/2 cup diced celery

1 cup packed arugula

1 tbsp minced parsley plus more for garnish

2 tsp minced mint

1 tsp toasted sesame seeds plus more for garnish

1/4 cup pomegranate seeds

pinch blank pepper

For the Tahini Sauce

1/4 cup Wild Garden Tahini Paste

3 tbsp water

2 tbsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp agave nectar

pinch salt


1For the squash: Preheat oven to 400F, and have ready large baking dish.

2Slice squash in half, length-wise, then scoop out seeds and discard them. Poke several holes in the squash halves, with a fork, and set them cut-side up in the baking dish. Add 1/4-inch of water to the baking dish, then lightly spray squash with cooking oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3Roast squash for 30 minutes, or until fork tender. Start on filling and sauce, in the meantime.

4In a saute pan, over medium heat, warm the oil. Once hot, add onion and celery to the pan, sautéing for 3 to 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Next, add Wild Garden Couscous Pilaf to the pan, and cook for 2 minutes.

5Lastly, add arugula, parsley, mint, sesame seeds, and pepper to the mixture, cooking until arugula is wilted. Season with pepper, to taste.

6For the sauce: In a small bowl, whisk tahini, water, lemon juice, agave, and salt together until completely smooth.

7To assemble: Once squash is roasted, divide filling between the 4 halves, then drizzle with tahini sauce, and top with pomegranate seeds, plus more sesame seeds and parsley. Serve while hot, and enjoy! Add even more greens to the dish by plating the squash on a platter lined with them. It also looks gorgeous!
